A new report published by our Office of Infectious Disease Services examines the epidemiology of selected infectious diseases in recent years. The report contains an overview of Arizona’s surveillance system, graphs and maps on more than 25 different reportable conditions and links to other ADHS tables and reports for 2008-2013.
Among many other topics, the report contains sections showing an increase in Shiga toxin-producing E. coli and pertussis cases over this five-year period; a description of expanded Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever distribution and activities in Arizona; and details about changes to the surveillance system itself.
A list of all the ADHS publications related to infectious diseases, as well as posters presented at conferences are also included. This is a great resource to learn more about the infectious diseases affecting Arizona and the great work that we have been doing.
